Wanted Chosen Planned nominated for a Yeggie

Why do I write this blog? There are a lot of reasons:

  • My son Zachary gave me the greatest gift of LOVE and compassion which I hope to share with others.
  • Wanted, Chosen, Planned is my labor of LOVE to make a difference in the world.
  • I LOVE writing and am glad that my gifts can be used in a meaningful way.

I guess it all comes down to LOVE…

These reasons are worth it in themselves but make it all the more special when I learn that my blog is nominated for a Yeggie – and has been shortlisted! A Yeggie is a new media award in Edmonton for bloggers, social network addicts and twitter personalities that are doing good things with their screen time.

Wanted, Chosen, Planned has been shortlisted in the “Family and Parenting” category. I find this a huge honor considering I am not the typical mommy blogger. I don’t write about recipes or helping my kids with homework or home décor. Wanted, Chosen, Planned is focused on loss and new life – this focus is intentional. I hope this blog can be a safe place for families to find comfort in the storm of emotions before/during/following the loss of a child. My dream is to form a community of support.
